“A project-local library installer for Common Lisp”
Qlot (pronounced kyü-’lät, like culotte) is a project-local library installer using Quicklisp facility. This aims to be like Bundler of Ruby or Carton of Perl.
We have Quicklisp, the central library registry. It made installation of libraries damn easy.
However, what only you can specify is the month of distribution. Which means you have to use all libraries of the same moment and you cannot use a newer/older version of a library for your project.
"local-projects/" or ASDF configurations may be a solution to this problem, but there are a couple of problems.
This is what Qlot is trying to solve.
